What a GOOD day!!
I need only one good knife in my kitchen.
DH repaired an exercise sword for a friend who does martial arts. I'm better at marital arts, but I thought I would give it a swing.
We had a wonderful turnout, and so many people brought goodies to share. Linda A brought a home-made lemon cheesecake. Moma brought rocky road candy. Linda G. brought meringues. I was running out of places to put the food. And Paul and David brought orange juice and champagne. Knitting with Mimosas? Oh yes!
We had a wonderful discussion about art and craft and what makes the differences. Tamara pointed out that The Cubists and Dadaists were dealing with culture that was changing at an unprecedented rate, with all standards and expectations disintegrating and being re-built, and the art was a response to this. I'd never thought of it in that way before. So now, I wonder, when change is hitting us like a jackhammer with a jetpack, How is art responding? I am SO not up on the current state of the art world.
And, we discussed the anniversary of the Titanic (think of all the folks who decided not to have dessert at dinner that night because it might be fattening. Take your joy when you can. You never know what'll happen next!)
In the living room, whenI made arun out there with the coffee, they were talking about celts, who went into battle naked and painted blue. Someone asked, "Why did they do that?" And I said, "Because they were in the middle of the woad."
Next month we are planning to do a yarn swap, so go through your drawers and find yarn which you are ready to part with, and bring it on down on the second Saturday in May. You'll probably find some new yarn to love.
